Top 15 Silliest Questions Asked by Tourists

Ever ask a stupid question and later pray that no one would remember your verbal slip-up?  Well, no such luck, at least not in the travel industry, where professionals seemingly have an extended memory just for the crazy things tourists ask. The Travel Industry  Association of America recently polled travel professionals to put together a list of the funniest questions asked by tourists -- and here are ones that made us grateful there's not a list of the funniest questions travel writers ask.....

  • Does the sun set every night?

  • Are the Amish in season?

  • How long is a one-day pass good for?

  • What time does the 9 o'clock ferry leave?

  • How many miles of undiscovered cave are there?

  • Why is the CLOSED FOR CLEANING sign on the rest room?

  • When do they turn off the waterfalls? (at Yosemite Nat'l Park)

  • How come all of the war battles were fought in National Parks?

  • Why don't you have better marking in the places where trails do not exist?

  • Is that the same moon we see in Vermont?

  • Why don't you have more signs saying to keep the area pristine?

  • How much does it cost to mail a letter to the U.S.? (from an American tourist in Hawaii)

  • If it rains, will the fireworks be held inside?

  • Will I need my passport when I get off the ferry on Nantucket?

  • What is the altitude? (on a boat passing through the fjords of Alaska's Inside Passage)
